The Discovery Cube has been on my must-see/do list for the longest time and I finally made time to get there.
Touching a tornado.
Spinning ping pong balls round and round until they dropped into a funnel.
Went on a dinosaur excursion, complete with our very own pointer stick.
Saw a water funnel.
Hit a few pucks and "drove" a Zamboni.
Got up close with Mother Earth.
Were mesmerized by blowing sand and the formations it made.
Moved sand around to see how topographical maps look and change.
Played with "smoke" and made it "poof."
Along with about 300 other hands on exhibits that I didn't take any picture of.
However, the ping pong exhibit (which reminded me a lot of the game Mouse Trap) was the show stopper. We went back to the ping pongs over and over and over and over.
Watching Marcus move from one exhibit to the next was easily the most amazing part for me. Seeing the wonder in his eyes as he manipulated and maneuvered things to see how they worked, or watched how they changed was pretty spectacular. Being able to set him loose in a place where I didn't have to say no to anything, and encouraged hands on activity to everything was simply the best. We both left The Cube with the biggest smiles on our faces.
My only regret is that we hadn't made the trip to The Cube sooner.
Since our little adventure Marcus has asked literally every. single. day. (for over a week now) if we can go back to The Cube. Lucky for him we have another trip lined up this week, along with a few other Bucket List items we need to check off.
